'''Bunjevci''' are a South Slavic community and ethnic group living mostly in the Bačka region of Serbia (province of Vojvodina) and southern Hungary (Bács-Kiskun county, particularly in the Baja (Baja (Hungary)) region). They presumably originate from western Herzegovina region, from where they migrated into the Dalmatia, and from there to Lika and Bačka in 16th and 17th century. Bunjevci who remained in the original areas in Bosnia and Herzegovina, as well as those in modern Croatia, today maintain the designation chiefly as an ethno-regional identity, and declare themselves as Croats. Bunjevci in Serbia declare themselves either as Bunjevci, Croats, or Yugoslav (Yugoslavs).

rock scenes

(Yugoslavia 1977-1991) instrument '''Prljavo kazalište''' (meaning in Croatian language: ''Dirty Theatre'') is a rock and roll band from Zagreb, Croatia. Since its formation in 1977 (1977 in music), the group changed several music styles (music genres) and line ups but remained one of the top acts of both the Croatian (Croatian rock) and the former Yugoslav rock scenes. In the 1950s, at the height of the Cold War, Titoist (Titoism) Yugoslavia advocated a socialist version of autogestion, leading to a break with Moscow, which practiced central planning and state ownership of industry. The economy of Yugoslavia (economy of SFRY) was organized according to the theories of Tito (Josip Broz) and - more directly - Edvard Kardelj. Croatian scientist Branko Horvat also made a significant contribution to the theory of socialism (''radničko samoupravljanje'') as practiced in Yugoslavia. With the exception of a recession in the mid-1960s, the country's economy prospered under Titoist Socialism. Unemployment was low, the education level of the work force steadily increased. The life expectancy (which was about 72 years) and living standards of Yugoslav citizens was nearly equal to the life expectancy and living standards of citizens of “western” capitalist countries such as Portugal. Due to Yugoslavia's neutrality and its leading role in the Non-Aligned Movement, Yugoslav companies exported to both Western and Eastern markets. Yugoslav companies carried out construction of numerous major infrastructural and industrial projects in Africa, Europe and Asia.

Croatia

Tourism (Tourism in Croatia) dominates the Croatian service sector and accounts for up to 20% of Croatian GDP. Annual tourist industry income for 2011 was estimated at €6.61 billion. Its positive effects are felt throughout the economy of Croatia in terms of increased business volume observed in retail business, processing industry orders and summer seasonal employment. The industry is considered an export business, because it significantly reduces the country's external trade imbalance.

The bulk of the tourist industry is concentrated along the Adriatic Sea coast. Opatija was the first holiday resort since the middle of the 19th century. By the 1890s, it became one of the most significant European health resorts.

Croatia has unpolluted marine areas reflected through numerous nature reserves and 116 Blue Flag beaches.
